OCC’S SCHOOL OF SAILING AND SEAMANSHIP
SLATES WINTER ADVANCED SHIELDS CLASS

Wednesday, December 13, 2006

A three-part advanced shields class will be offered this winter by Orange Coast College's School of Sailing and Seamanship.

The course is designed for sailors with intermediate shields skills. Students must have basic boat handling, terminology and points of sail mastered before taking the class. Taught in shields sloops, the non-credit course focuses on refining helm work and sail trimming skills. Most importantly, the class introduces the spinnaker.

The course meets on Sunday afternoons, Jan. 28, Feb. 4 and 11, from 1:45-5:30 p.m. at OCC's Sailing Center in Newport Beach. Registration fee is $130. Visa and MasterCard holders may register by phone.

OCC's Sailing Center is located at 1801 W. Pacific Coast Highway, between the Balboa Bay Club and Orange County Sea Scout Base. For information about OCC's sailing classes, phone (949) 645-9412.
